Travel, dolls and plans!

I just came from the post office. Before of a small vacation, all the orders are sent, and now I can relax a little.
What to do in these few days before the flight?

Start collecting things in a suitcase? Too early))) a Little quiz about where I was going. This is one of the provinces of the large European countries. 1500383704_545882_27
She is known around the world for various attractions, holidays, and symbols. On holidays there playing the accordion and drink beer. In the vicinity of the capital of this region’s many castles.Neuschwanstein People seem open and friendly. I recognize this very soon and will definitely tell you on my blog!

To sum up the year and my blog? Too early.
Lately, my side has been a clear failure in writing new posts. But it is understandable. New doll chained my attention. As often happens, each new resident in my dollhouse too much I work on it. My new model is this Lady. 600She comes from a family of dolls from Heidi Ott. I already told you about them. So…this is quite a complex model. With a small increase only 5.5 inches, it has the proportions of the female body. And not a hike to my baby dolls.
She has a very Tokaj waist. Just like Dita von Tiss)))25166_DitaVonTeese_0 And this causes some complications in calculating and knitting. But I don’t know how to be depressed and not looking for easy ways)) So the basic closet turned out fabulous!344437303613ys3691ho6

A few days before you travel, to try new ideas and think about the new collection) and of course on those lovely kids who are waiting for me on my journey. They already bought one of them long-awaited doll from CACO!!! HURRAY!!IMG_4359

Welcome to the world of “Caco” from Fritz Canzler

Many people always wonder why others collect collections, especially when these collections seem strange to them. Doll collection more often than others can raise questions and concern for others. Are the collectors hesitate when you have to explain it’s a hobby.   Collecting dolls is not uncommon, and even has its own term — Plangonologia. ( I didn’t even know about it before)!IMG_0376

Professional collection less need of explanation than the Amateur that does not consist of antique, vintage, or unique art dolls, and doll games. But “lovers” are no less positive emotions from your Hobbies.

From the point of view of psychology, collectors dolls are no different from other collectors, for example, stamps, coins, or cars. Psychology does not give an accurate explanation of people’s desire to spend huge amounts of time, money and energy to maintain its collections, but has a few assumptions:

 

* Happy moments from the past
* Filling inner emotional emptiness
* The pursuit of thrills
* A sense of control over the situation
* Unconscious desire to replenish their collections.

I don’t want to get lost in a psychological maze so I will not discuss these reasons. I will touch on only some.  The first idea or the reason for the gathering of dolls I like. Therefore, I will consider it the most important!

So. As I wrote clever words, and what…..? And the fact that a week ago, my friend Anna ( about her I already wrote, remember how we played with dolls?) showed me a miniature boy doll. Thin and incredibly lifelike face, this doll put me in awe.$_57

And..I, as a real collector now), I decided that I want this miniature doll in my collection!!!    And of course, I started to look for information. Look what I found.

In the early 1900-is in Germany (the first mention occurs in 1906) Herr Canzler started the company in the export of toys, dolls, doll clothes and accessories. In consequence, the numerous overlays that are related to suppliers, after the I-St World war, together with Herr Hoffmann, he still decided to launch their own line of dolls. Date of Foundation of the company Canzler & Hoffmann 1924, the headquarters of the Sonnenberg.
In 1925 registered the logo of the company, which has manufactured products until the early 50-is.image caco

You are absolutely right. I’m talking about the very well-known firm of dollhouses ” Caco”.

In 1927 the first doll saw the light.46447f97d685

It was a small doll for doll houses, through the frame was plastic, can make different poses. Hands and feet were made of lead, head of plastics (composites and papier mache)
Later, in the early 30’s, dolls were made of celluloid, for the effect of the skin. After the ban of lead and celluloid, the production switched to plastic. The heads were also plastic. But it was too late.

There is mention that the firm was represented at the Leipzig fair in 1939.e56e2f8079bb

In 1945, the company moved to Neustadt – Coburg (American occupied zone), a certificate of registration is in 1948. From 1951-1953, the company changed its name and logo, now it’s called CaCo – CanzlerCoburg.a0eeb733e1e4

Was built its production. Corporate logo was decorated exactly in Coburg.
In the early 70s, the company was sold.
However, the Brand is well known in our time, the company continues to manufacture mobile dolls Biegepuppen, for collectors and special occasions make dolls with porcelain heads are made and various miniatures for doll houses.96273eaee060
The management of the company carries out Frau Berndt-Hausser.
Here’s how to change the technology, visible winding different materials, different materials goals, was replaced by a drawing of the face.0b2fa9826c2c

Heidi Ott dolls family

Doll collections are not always made quickly. They are replenished slowly, and often consciously. The beginning of this collection was launched a few months ago when I bought a Toddler doll. When I got used to it and loved it, I thought I’d be able to create clothes for the little doll from the collection of dolls for the Dollhouse. So I got the baby from Heidi Ott.

As I wrote, these dolls strike a very delicate and attention to detail of the body and especially the face. It seems that the faces as living and never cease to wonder at this amazing drawing of faces.

So the other day my house finally came with the following doll from a large collection of dolls Heidi. This is the Doll Lady. Her height is 5.5 inches. She^s body is not a puppet in the usual our understanding of the meaning. It’s really the female body in a very reduced size. Quite harmonious and proportionate. Now my small family to gather.

So I was finally able to implement my old idea to make a small collection of knitted dresses in one style and in one color. For the first collection, I chose the color pink. He is the best to dolls. Gives soft and mood puppet happiness.heidi ott dolls

2018 – Hey Dog!

According to the Eastern calendar, the year 2018 will be the year of the earth Dog. The dog is by nature honest and friendly beast, but acting according to their own principles. That animal always comes to the aid of kind and gentle host and always ready to bite the enemy.9374540-tjtke

2018 – how to celebrate For those who pay attention to horoscopes, is of great significance, how to celebrate the year 2018. Preference should be given to modest classic costume in color scheme close to the symbolism of this cycle. Perfect:
shades of yellow and brown: Orange, Grenadine Red, Pale pink, Neutral Gray, Navy Peony, Golden Lime, Marina ….. see this picture.modnye-cveta-osen-zima-2017-2018-goda-ot-panton-2-1

In the year of Yellow earth, Dog should be avoided too revealing, short and open dresses that expose the shoulders and back. Need to dress modestly and with restraint, but the outfit should be of good quality.

If you believe the Chinese (Eastern) calendar, 2018 (earth Dog) the year is more than fair for the person because his totem will be a Dog. The year of what animal may be friendlier to us? It is the dog began many centuries ago best our helper in the hunt, in the protection of our homes and in many other aspects of life.

Work and plans.

As long as I was not))) But this time I spent at work. At first, I was setting up my new workspace. Laid out on the shelves and boxes of my treasures. How I accumulated a lot of yarn and other Spotswood materials. And all it had to organize and distribute according to importance and usefulness. Now my Desk is located right by the window and all I need is “at hand”.IMG_3323IMG_3325IMG_3327

At the same time, I got new yarn for new dresses. Some I have tried and was pleased with her. I’ll write more about it later in a separate post. And here is the work of the new yarn.The yarn is thin and very soft. Knit from it a pleasure. Here are some works from this yarn.il_570xN.1285941726_5oykLati white SP outfitil_570xN.1303769042_2c9b

Usually all the build plans in the beginning of the month, I’m now trying to organize my operation. How I want to have another three pairs of hands and a little more time in the day)     Let’s start in order. Last week I went back to working with leather. I thought my dolls needed leather accessories. That’s why I started a small collection of leather skirts.IMG_37283736lilac sweater lati sp

When I was going through my treasures, I came across a workpiece for new brooches. And something me right in the back pushed…Have to finish it!!!!IMG_3775IMG_3778

I now very rarely make jewelry, and I noticed what must happen something very important that I returned to making jewelry. This signal to me was the opinion of one of my clients who bought one of my “Eye-brooch”. Gift liked very much. I really love these brooches, each brooch is eye turns not similar to the previous one. This time I made three brooches in the form of the eye. I hope they will be a wonderful gift for the modern woman, striving for individuality.evil eye

In addition to the brooches in the form of eyes, I make brooches Owls. A symbol of wisdom and longevity. The owl as a totem and as an amulet. About it I already wrote in one of my previous posts. The new Owl was unusual)

“Fashion verdict”

On Russian television, there is a project called “Fashion verdict”. A very popular program. The essence of this transmission is that the program invites the woman. Who does not know how to dress or do not know how to combine clothes. One leading it protects and finds many reasons why she does this. Second leading, on the contrary, criticizes a woman and advises how to properly dress. The chief judge is either known to the designer or, as is now well-known fashion historian Alexander Vasiliev. The first part of the program devoted to the hearing of the defendant and the Prosecutor. In the second part, the woman returned to the shop and she chooses three outfits. Invited to the famous person commented on the selection of participants. In the third part of the program, the stylists work with the participant and to your taste decorate it. The audience in the Studio at the end of program vote, or the choice of the heroine of the program or select stylists.
Here and planned to do something similar)
Julia came to me like that. Very nice view for walking or meeting friends. But suppose on the street autumn. And I, as a stylist disguised Julia.950731

Pattern for Julia

Now I am asked to write a pattern for knitting dresses. I’m sure is written it. And I’ve already started working on it. I must admit that I find it difficult to do yourself. Definitions and abbreviations for the description of works in Russian and English languages differ from each other. And method of knitting, as I recently learned, is also different. But that does not mean to associate knitting my dress will be difficult. I will try to write easier and make more photos, so you will understand the process of its creation. But let’s focus on some of the complexities of this process.

1 Tools for the job.
I work very thin needles for knitting. Their size of 1 mm. In the American system, they have the number 0000.D9987-3 (1)
2 Yarn.
As you know from my previous posts, I also choose a very thin yarn. For example, yarn Nirvana has such data in 25 g (0,88 oz) of 340 meters (372 yds)
In this work, it is very important patience and attentiveness.

But I tried to make the pattern is not very complicated dresses. It turned out to be quite interesting and exciting for me. The dress I chose that.title 1

I like dresses for dolls, which you can then add different accessories or create a similar dress a second time, slightly change the pattern of knitting. Like this white knitting dress. It is patterned, but a little-added ornament on the front.2194

If you are interested in this dress, you can see it in my store on Etsy.
